The first day of the 2016 PokerStars.com EPT13 Malta €10,300 High Roller attracted a field of 137 entries, of which 109 were unique entries and 28 players opted to fire a second bullet throughout the ten levels of one hour each. Only 73 players bagged up chips for Day 2 and Alexander Ivarsson secured a decent lead over the rest of the field with 379,100. The Swede was always among the big stacks at the EPT12 Malta Main Event back in October 2015 and ultimately had to settle for 9th place and a payday of €49,560 one year ago.

Second in chips is Armando Collado from Nicaragua with 258,300, while Diego Zeiter bagged up 251,700. Other big stacks and notables include [Removed:172] (220,000), Martin Finger (216,000), Farid Jattin (214,700), Stephen Chidwick (207,300), Team PokerStars Pro Theo Jorgensen (189,500), Cate Hall (166,900) and Georgios Zisimopoulos (161,800).

Among those to enter twice and run out of chip entirely were Vladimir Troyanovskiy, Dietrich Fast, Jason Wheeler, Benny Spindler, €10K,300 Single-Day High Roller champion Jakub Michalak, and Andrey Andreev. The latter in fact had been sent to the rail not once but twice in the first two and a half hours. Andreev's first bullet saw him flop top two pair only to run into the bottom set of Ivarsson. The Swede then consistently built his stack and eliminated several shorter stacks on his way to an impressive overnight lead.

Chidwick ran on his first bullet with kings into aces, bought back in and doubled before busting Spindler with ace-eight suited versus ace-queen. Zisimopoulos cooled down the hot early run of Charlie Carrel by winning a flip with ace-king against pocket queens, an ace hit on the river. Adrian Mateos was among the big stacks for most of the day, but a big move against Martin Finger with king-deuce suited in the last level of the night was not rewarded. The Spaniard eventually bagged up a mere 23,300, other short stacks for Day 2 include Nick Petrangelo (15,000), Frederik Jensen (19,600) and Davidi Kitai (35,000).

Registration remains open until 15 minutes prior to the restart with blinds of 1,000-2,000 and a running ante of 300, all new entries will thus receive 25 big blinds for level 11. The seat draw for Day 2 and the prize pool information will be released once the cards are back underway. The PokerNews live reporting team will be on hand to provide all the action until a winner is crowned on Saturday, so make sure to tune back in regularly.

Tremzin Gets Bluffed; Amirov Folds

[user38873] • Nível 10: 800-1,600, 200 ante

After the last three hands had been announced, Cristian Juanena shoved on the {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{3-Spades}{J-Clubs} turn against Gleb Tremzin. The latter eventually folded and Connor Drinan immediately said "you were bluffed." Sure enough Juanena showed the {Q-Hearts}{6-Hearts} for queen-high.

Ilkin Amirov faced the decision to hero call or bag up a tiny stack when checking the {9-Clubs}{3-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} river. Table neighbor Grzegorz Grochulski bet 42,000 with another 3,000 behind and Amirov talked through possible hands before folding.

Last Three Hands

The Tournament Staff has just announced last three hands of the day.

Lanuza Finds Massive Call on River

"I was getting annoyed about the ten-minute hand, but that was actually worth it", said Charlie Carrel while tablemate Armando Collado Lanuza scooped the massive pot.

It was the aftermath of a hand against Mikita Badziakouski, where Badziakouski had bet both turn (for 12,000) and river (for 35,000) on a {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds}{9-Spades} board. Lanuza had reluctantly made the call on river with {J-Diamonds}{J-Clubs} saying "Show me the queen", but Badziakouski could only shake his head and reply "Good call" before tossing his fives into the muck.

Carrel Sends Katchalov on the Rail

Charlie Carrel

Charlie Carrel opened to 4,000 from the cutoff before Eugene Katchalov put his remaining 32,000 at risk from the small blind. Carrel thought for about a second before slamming his small stack over the line, and the hands were on their back.

Katchalov: {K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}
Carrel: {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}

Even though it started out as a flip, Carrel became a hefty favorite on the {8-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} flop.

"Your'e F*ed", was the assessment from Carrel and Katchalov agreed, but the {K-Hearts} turn made it interesting again.

The river, however, was the {9-Spades}, and the set of nines was good enough to send the pot to Carrel and Katchalov to the rail.

Chidwick Flushes Spindler

Adrian Mateos has dropped even more chips while Stephen Chidwick just knocked out Benny Spindler to take over the role of biggest stack on their respective table.

Spindler raised to 4,200 from the button and Chidwick simply slid forward a tower of T-5,000 chips to Spindler two options - fold or call for the tournament life. Spindler opted for the latter to put himself at risk for approximately 46,000.

Benny Spindler: {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}
Stephen Chidwick: {A-Spades}{8-Spades}

The flop of {7-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{2-Spades} gave Chidwick a flushdraw, and while the {K-Diamonds} on the turn was a blank, the {3-Spades} on the river wasn't. Chidwick completed his flush and sent Spindler to the rail.

A big pot was brewing with Adrian Mateos and Martin Finger involved. According to Finger, it was Mateos who raised to 3,500 and Finger three-bet to 10,500, Mateos four-bet to 23,000 and Finger called. On the {9-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{2-Hearts} flop, Mateos bet 16,000 and Finger called before the {A-Spades} hit on the turn. Mateos shoved and Finger called for his last 56,900.

Martin Finger: {A-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}
Adrian Mateos: {K-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}

The {J-Diamonds} on the river was a blank and Finger doubled.

Macdonnell Takes Big Pot from Jorgensen

Marc Macdonnell and Theo Jorgensen had built themselves a considerable pot of 35,000 on the {9-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{10-Hearts} board before Jorgensen threw out a bet of 15,000 on the river.

Macdonnell spent quite some time before deciding on a shove, and that made Jorgensen fly up from his chair.

"Wow", were the only comprehendible word out of the Dane's mouth, who couldn't quite make up his mind. In the end he flicked his cards into the muck, and Macdonnel flipped over his {A-Hearts}{K-Spades} with a little shrug before he dragged the pot.
